He's throwing cutters...Not changeups.

JJ -- White Sox Beerleaguer

Texas Leaguers classifies it as a changeup:

So does Fangraphs here:

I know Fangraphs says Thornton is throwing a cutter on his player page, but given that he's thrown the changeup before in the 89 mph range, I'm more inclined to believe that's what he's throwing.
